I've recently switched to xubuntu from windows, inspite of a few hiccups its worth it.There are few issues i would appreciate help on:
1) i downloaded some programs thru 'ubuntu software center'. but because i require just basic functionatlity, so decided to remove all the programs which i wont be using. These included some programs which come preinstalled with xubuntu.Since then, whenver i try to install anything from 'ubuntu software center', it gives me an error 'Failed to download package files: check your internet connection' even though i'm connected. Also, no matter what package i downlad, it is always under 'Not Authenticated' label, even when downloading thru synaptic.
2) before i did the uninstalling, there was a guest account also. But now, even though it is enabled in UAC, but doesnt show up on login, only the admin account is available.
i've tried reinstalling the package files that were mentioned 'removed' in ubuntu software center, to no avail.could someone help out?
